This article argues that the traditional model of the theory of social choice is not a good model and does not lead to acceptable methods of ranking and electing. It presents a more meaningful and realistic model that leads naturally to a method of ranking and electing—majority judgment—that better meets the traditional criteria of what constitutes a good method. It gives descriptions of its successful use in several different practical situations and compares it with other methods including Condorcet's, Borda's, first-past-the-post, and approval voting.

Item Type: Article
Uncontrolled Keywords: methods of electing and ranking, Condorcet and Arrow paradoxes, strategic manipulation, faithful representation, meaningful measurement, figure skating, presidential elections, jury decisions
